I know I've been slacking on the posts and I apologize.
I'm in some kind of funk. Can't put my finger on it. I've been so uninspired lately. It's even caused me to stop shopping! Can you believe it?! Shocking, I know.
Yesterday, my fam and I went to see the Pasadena Showcase House. Every year, a mansion is chosen and different designers come to decorate each room to their liking. This year's house was built in the 1920's and was originally used as a second getaway home. It had 14 different rooms and huge grounds that included a cottage, pool with adjacent pool house (of course!), outside sitting rooms and at least two beautiful gardens complete with monarch butterflies. It was AMAZING!
Anyway, this was the outfit I wore. A tie dye dress. Flowy and fun. But I topped it off with the blazer for some structure. And since we weren't allowed to wear heels in the mansion, I opted for some jeweled sandals in a muted grey. And I chose some jewelry that felt a little more "mansion" appropriate.
The blazer was a good choice that night since we attended a private dinner party at the mansion after our tour and I was able to schmooze comfortably with some corporate folk.
This week has been extremely warm. I've been living in dresses. They are my favorite thing to wear in warm weather because they are so effortless. I just throw one on and go. Unfortunately, after "womaning out" as I mentioned in the last post, I am left with less than half of the dresses in my closet to wear that I've acquired through the years. They're either too tight or too short for my taste and hips. Boooooo. Guess it's time to shop for new ones!
This dress on the hanger looked extremely too boho for me. I don't usually make the best boho girl because I prefer a little more structure with more defined silhouettes and color palettes. I am a city girl in love with black and a touch of rocker edge. But, at times will choose to play up my feminine, classic side. I may mix in a dress or shirt that looks bohemian into my city style but I would never be able to pull off the "just rolled out of bed, threw this on and my hair looks perfect" look on a daily basis.
